Broadway Limited's another outfit that really puts out an effort to get it right.  Their 3768 is probably as correct as any version's likely to be.

Hey Wayne -- if they're so detail-oriented, why are the high- and low-mounted keystone pictures for the bronze versions reversed in that Website listing?

As I recall, Loewy was going after 'statuary bronze' and might have included the metallic flecks to mirror the tiny sparkles of color you see in that material when it has weathered dark (as opposed to carbonate green patina)
